17 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My name is Mark Crowe, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. I have worked in the mental health field for over 14 years and currently own and operate a private practice in the Greater Houston area. My professional career has involved working for child protective services, and many years working as a high school counselor. I have extensive experience working with young adults, families and parents, and couples. Areas of struggle that I have helped clients include depression, anxiety, grief and loss, parenting issues, relationship and marriage troubles, and family conflict. I understand that seeking counseling can at times take a tremendous amount of courage and emotional effort. Having been in counseling as a child with my own family, I can empathize with this feeling. I have seen counseling when it is ineffective, and I have also been involved when it has provided great healing. As a therapist, I take this experience and seek to make the counseling experience as natural, laid back and easy as possible. I seek to build a comfortable and relaxed relationship with my clients, where we can develop a plan to address the areas in your life which have caused pain, stress and discomfort. I value the counseling relationship and have been described as passionate, responsive and caring by former and current clients. We all go through times of struggle and pain. We all have our stories to tell and our own healing to attain. If you feel like this now and are seeking help, I look forward to the opportunity to work with you. *** NOTE= DUE TO PERSONAL WORK SCHEDULE, I AM ONLY AVAILABLE TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY MORNINGS FROM 9:30-11am CST.******

5 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Throughout my experience, my clients have struggled with fear of the unknown; had difficulty getting started or knowing where to begin; have experienced uncertainty about a new life phase or change, whether expected or unexpected; and have questioned their purpose, goals, roles, or relationships; and ultimately we walked together as they found empowerment and strategies to overcome these challenges. My intention is to help you do the same. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with ten years experience in a variety of roles helping families through parenting issues, and three years of dedicated counseling experience specifically focusing on clinical issues. I received my M.Ed. in Human Development Counseling from Vanderbilt University in 2016, and made a career change to become a counselor. While I have spent time as an administrator and consultant in mental health facilities, my clinical counseling focus is anxiety/ depression, motivational issues, parenting struggles, trauma and PTSD, family issues, and substance abuse and recovery. Within my experience as a substance abuse counselor, I have worked with veterans, other counselors, individuals, groups, and families to understand, approach, and maintain a life of recovery. Having provided therapy and administrative services in the world of adolescent mental health, I have significant experience helping parents to understand and empower their child through difficult times. Through counseling and consultation, I have also provided workshops and trainings for business professionals looking to improve the effectiveness of and cohesion in their professional team. My approach combines a person-centered approach with cognitive and reality therapy in order to let you be the expert about your life. My goal is to understand where you feel "stuck," help you to envision what you want for your life and where you're trying to go, collaborate with you to develop the necessary steps, and provide the counseling along the way to help you achieve your vision.

I wake up every day excited and passionate to work with people in psychotherapy. When I think about helping people, I believe that establishing a good therapeutic relationship and giving clients a voice is what helps them the most. I also believe that good listening is the main component of establishing a therapeutic relationship with clients. Although I consider myself as eclectic, I incorporate various therapy techniques into my practice such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Mindfulness-based approaches to help my clients. With that said, I am open to client feedbacks and what works best for them. I strive with every client to build a trusting therapeutic relationship where they feel they have a voice and where we collaboratively create a safe space to discuss life challenges and stressors. I have been working as a Licensed Professor Counselor (LPC) for approximately 10 years specializing in grief/loss, anxiety, depression, family/relationship issues, anger management and abuse. I have worked in numerous populations and settings over my career which include private practices, non-profit organizations, agencies, and public schools. Primarily, I work with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, grief/loss, domestic abuses, and anger issues. I am also a Certified Anger Therapist (CART) who is well equipped and experienced to help individuals cope and manage anger problems in a healthier way.

I am licensed in with 6 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with coping with addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, & intimacy related issues. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. If you are ready to do the work, I am ready to walk with you during your healing journey. Solution Focused Brief Therapy is a great tool that is a strengths based approach, focusing on the current circumstances you are in while also exploring how to start steps towards your goals. Socratic dialogue is sometimes used during therapy to help you explore thoughts and feelings more, especially if you are at a stuck point. Sometimes Socratic Dialogue feels less empathetic, it has the purpose of helping you shift perspective or trust yourself to find solutions. Examples of Socratic Dialogue can include: How do you know? Can you give me an example of that? What do you mean by that? What would be the consequences of that? What is the counterargument? Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, the best description for this modality comes from Healthline.com: "This core principle underlies acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). ACT views “negative” emotions and experiences as part of life. Trying to avoid them can lead to unhelpful or unproductive behaviors. ACT (pronounced “act”) helps you accept the reality of these experiences and commit to pursuing your values." (www.Healthline.com). My treatment focus is client centered, we will work towards your goals (of course you have to do the work).

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Beasley?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Beasley therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Beasley therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Beasley therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Beasley therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Beasley counselor?

Before seeing your Beasley therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Beasley.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Beasley licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Beasley counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Beasley, Texas can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
